Kindergarten at One School of the Arts encourages scholars to experience their education. Kindergarten classrooms are bright spaces for creativity, discovery, play, and exploration. Scholars learn from their teacher about their responsibilities in the classroom environment and they learn fundamentally how to be a scholar.
The program concentrates on developing instructional independence, self-control and what it means to be kind to others, helping caregivers instill values that matter. These concepts are infused into or extracted from the curriculum, and are taught through dynamic lessons rooted in the educational approach of Whole Brain Teaching.
